[Samba] Samba4 AD Groups Problem

I created a Samba4 Demo Server to test AD functionality. Basically  
it's a Debian Wheezy machine with a manually compiled Samba4  
(smbstatus -V: Version 4.1.0pre1-GIT-051a1a9) according to  
https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba4/HOWTO but adjusted the paths  
to a more debian way.

I can Manage the Server with the Windows Domain Utilities, add users,  
add groups, add Machines and so on.
I created some printers and managed to set up Point and Print Drivers  
using print$.

So I think the Server basically works as expected.

Now I'm trying to set up a share which can be read by everyone and  
written by Domain Admins only. I can see the share on my server as  
well as a file created in there on the linux command line, but I'm not  
able to enable write Permission for Domain Admins.

I created a directory on the server /space/testshare and did a "chmod  
777 /space/testshare" to be shure there's no problem on the linux file  
system. When I set "read only = no" on the share I can create a file  
there without any problem. But setting "read only = yes" and "write  
list = @"TEST\Domain Admins"" doesn't work - I get "access denied" on  
the windows host, despite I'm logged on as TEST\Administrator

Some additional information:

     read only = No
     printable = Yes

     path = /var/spool/samba/driver
     read only = No

     Comment = Test share
     path = /space/testshare
     read only = Yes
     write list = @"TEST\Domain Admins"

Any help what to do next?
